English Immersion: Public Speaking

Education Unlimited - English Immersion: Public Speaking

English Immersion: Public Speaking

When learning a new language it is important for students to place special emphasis on the ability to speak effectively and with comfort. Through this program, students will be able to sharpen their communication abilities in a way that will allow them to be more articulate and confident as they communicate their ideas.

A focus will be placed on helping students to build the skills necessary to excel in school, attain their dream jobs and defend their beliefs and values in their new language. Students will focus on the mastery of English fluency while learning the grammar and vocabulary that will be useful to them as they develop their own authentic voice. They will have the opportunity to practice their speaking skills while conversing with native speakers in authentic situations. Students will learn how to do effective presentations, participate in meetings, write for business situations as well as develop strong interview techniques.

5 Reasons to Focus on Public Speaking This Summer!

  1. Speaking fluently and confidently is a necessary and indispensable life skill necessary for success in the education or business setting.
  2. Public speaking improves research and organization abilities- crucial skills for high school and college success.
  3. Employers rank public speaking as one of the top skills they look for in employees. Students can get a head start on their dream careers by developing skills that will translate in the workforce.
  4. Public speaking activities involve "active construction of knowledge" forcing English Language learners to begin to think in English as they analyze the information they hear rather than just memorizing and reciting vocabulary.
  5. Speech helps develop social skills, such as confidence, eye contact, poise, and articulation which will help students to develop an ease and fluency when they speak English.
